This is not a guide to current information though I have tried as far as possible to enter all the information that has been printed in London Drinker. Up-to-date information can be obtained from Whatpub. As with the published guides establishments calling themselves bars, cafes etc have been (largely) ignored. If you want the pub phone number then use this link but they can also be found along with links to Facebook and pub website from Whatpub. TRAVEL: Underground map.. Plan your journey Transport For London..
The way to use this online guide is to search for your pub here and then refer to the 1991 to now update file. then to the latest update and here it is! New establishments opening without real ale have been omitted from this list. For a list of all "pubs" then refer to John Adams list and his website..

In March 1983 a guide was produced by Adrian Hall and Maxine Cooper and circulated amongst branch members. Here it is in PDF format.
